Help! Teenage girl gets stuck in a DRAIN after removing metal cover to try and retrieve her iPhone with her feetOther
A teenager found herself up to her neck in trouble yesterday when she got stuck while trying to retrieve her iPhone from a drain.
The 16-year-old dropped her iPhone 5 down the drain near her home in Dover, Kent.
Armed with wellies and a towel she went down feet first to retrieve it.
Finding herself jammed into the drain emergency services had to be called but, luckily, it was a quick rescue.
Kent Fire and Rescue Service received the call at 7.17pm and by 7.26pm, Miss Sankey was free.
These photographs, taken by an eye witness, show two firefighters grabbing her arms and hauling her to safety while another watches on.
A firefighter from Dover fire station said: 'She was trying to retrieve her iPhone that she dropped down there. It's very unusual! I hear a few people have taken pictures.'
The drain cover and a pair of red wellies and a towel, understood to belong to the teenager, were next to the drain.
The photos of the incident have been posted on Facebook and Twitter and have since gone viral on the social networking sites.
The girl was not injured but a friend posted on Facebook that the phone was 'ruined'.
